It is looking more and more likely that we are about to vote for Brexit. And if that happens, who shall we blame? The list is a long one:
But for myself, I shall especially resent the sensible, decent, liberal, educated people who keep telling me that there is no need to worry, that 'of course' we will never vote Brexit, for not stirring themselves to fight or thinking it strange and really a bit vulgar to do so, or who thought the arguments were too complex or too finely balanced to bother with.
And if you vote Brexit, who will you blame for the baleful consequences, foretold as they are by every world leader and every world and UK organisation of any standing? Not yourself, that goes without saying. Happily, the Tory press are already working on that, and I am confident that the culprits responsible for every disaster that unfolds post Brexit will turn out to be – yep, those damned foreigners. Again.
